Knitting From Both Sides

Loads of work last week. I did manage to finish my part of the project, proofing in the process that the change that was done, might not have been such a good idea. Well, one more machine to inspect, and than that's over with.

Enough of the whining.

I finished one of the cable net socks and am about 60% done with the second.

The cable stands out wonderfully, but I didn't manage to get rid fo the 'ladder' that runs down the side of the leg *sigh* - at least I think it's obvious, don't know if others do.
It is still very slow knitting, but I hope to finish the second one some time soon.
The sock itself is wonderfully soft, a pleasure to wear.

Frustrated with the slow progress on the sock, I've started another little project. Pot holders.
Yippy, so exiting.
Of course, they do have a twist.

This is the back and the front side of the pot holder - and both are knitted at the same time, at the same needle. I've seen that technic at some sides on the internet, and I always wanted to try it. Of course, when I went looking the other day, I couldn't find any pattern. So I somehow worked out the 'how' on my own - I'm a bit surprised that it worked.
I plan on crocheting around the side with one color when I'm done.

Finally, the promised update on 'Not Forgotten'.
I finished the rainbow (my version) and stitched the phoenix (incl. backstitch) and the gryphons (without bs)

Your sock is lovely. I really like the pot holder, the pattern is such fun they do look like they would be very enjoyable to knit. Congratulations on figuring out how to do it all on your own.

Not forgotten is looking great, you're making good headway on that.
